  1. @keithcollantine Might it be worth noting that for those in the UK, the clocks go back this weekend?

    1. @bradley13
      Not that I want to complain about the fact that it isn’t there, but I think that would be well worth mentioning that above too.

    2. @bradley13 to be fair Bradley, it’s not a race during the night/early morning so most computers/DVRs/alarm clocks with RDS/DST support should have been updated by the time the race rolls around, but I guess you never know :)

    3. At least by 7pm you’d be worried if you hadn’t worked it out yet :)
      I remember once getting up for an early morning race in spring one year (must have been Melbourne in late 90s?), then being distraught to find that the clocks had gone forward and I’d missed the first hour.

        Also helps for those of us overseas converting the UK times into our local one.

      Ah, that explains why it’s an hour earlier than last week’s race.

      1. @Lewisham Milton No, it’s because both Mexico City and Austin use the central time, and the Mexican GP starts an hour earlier than the US GP.

        1. True, but Texas has not yet put their clocks back so this race starts at 2pm in Austin, as did the US GP.

  2. @optimaximal – Oh definitely, and as @eurobrun says, hopefully by 7pm people would have worked it out, but all sorts of weird goings on could potentially occur…

  3. The annual 1-hour changes shouldn’t be a problem with the North American races as they’re always evening races in the European time zones regardless of the 1-hour shift. Besides Mexico does the same thing on the same day as well, so the time difference is the same both at the start of the race weekend and at the end of it.

  4. But next year’s Australian GP is set to be run on the last Sunday in March (The day the summer time starts in Europe), so that’s another thing.
